Ugh. That's like a punch in the gut. What a terrible loss. I don't even know what to say. Devastating...

That's WAAAAAY bigger than football. How old was he? I think he played not long ago - so sorry to hear this!

From what I've seen on Twitter, he collapsed during a flag football game.

Very sad.

So sad. I wonder if there will be a moment of silence at the basketball game tonight

Hobo that is a good idea. Hopefully there will be but maybe they would not have had time to get it organized. Furman might be a better game to do it anyway. I remember TO being freaky athletic. I hope another Terrier fan will correct me if I am wrong but I remember that he could do a backward somersault - or was it forward ? - from standing still and land on his feet. That is athletic for anybody but a guy who weighed more than 250 lbs that is amazing. And he always appeared very humble and a good person.

Tarek was a tremendous athlete and a great person, and had a lot to offer for the future--Had an opportunity to meet him his senior year-He will be missed--

I heard that Tarek passed at the basketball game tonight. Shocked and saddened. He was way too young. My condolences to his family and friends.

Class of 2015. So he was still very much in the prime of his life.

Very nice article in the Times Union newspaper sports section (Jacksonville, FL) about TO. Such a sad loss for one so young.
